Greenhorns, brain diarrhea, false teardrops. Yuriy Lutsenko, Ukraine’s General Prosecutor, used these words answering the question of Ukrainian MP about his disrespectful speaking about another MP from the rostrum of the Verkhovna Rada.
In his today’s speech in the parliament and his announcement of his resignation, Lutsenko spoke of Mustafa Nayem, a former journalist and now legislator, whose Facebook and Twitter postings helped trigger the Maidan Revolution of 2013-2014.
“I can’t permit dual power in the country when the law enforcement system is being destroyed with no proof even for the cases detected. As the head of the law enforcement system, I am going to file my resignation today. Then, it will be up to you to decide whether Mustafa Nayem will run the investigation and identify the perpetrators on air or the law enforcers, who bear criminal responsibility for that,” Lutsenko said.
When an MP from the session hall of the Verkhovna Rada asked on what grounds he demonstrates the disrespectful attitude towards an MP, the Prosecutor General replied:
“All this already happened in the past, when bastards tried to attach themselves to the murder of Nozdrovska and used to spill an ocean of tears here insisting that the investigation is at standstill. When the accused defendant, charged with murder, went to court, no one of these bastards have shown up in the court. Nobody cares! And today the Narodny Front (a political party of Ukraine founded by Arseniy Yatsenyuk and Oleksandr Turchynov in 2014, - 112.international) works on the funeral of Handziuk, but not these public figures who only pick up their bloody dividends. If the head of the committee who had to run the whole anti-corruption policy still doesn’t understand the difference between procedural command and investigation, which doesn’t exist for a year in the Prosecutor General's Office of Ukraine, then he is a greenhorn with brain diarrhea and not ahead of the committee.”
Apparently, Lutsenko was speaking about Ehor Sobolev, who was the head of the anti-corruption committee of the Verkhovna Rada until recently.
